Uses pitching mould clay so it feels just like a real mound
Modular design makes it more portable than conventional portable mounds
Real. Feel. Portable. (RFP) Mounds
Two people can setup a mound core in about 60 seconds
Why? Because pitching is a very precise athletic movement: For an 80 mph fastball, a 5/8 inch difference in release point is the difference between the top of the zone and the bottom of the zone. Variances, from mound to mound, in the height, slope, and/or maintenance (e.g., holes) will cause a pitcher to compensate his pitching mechanics far more than 5/8 of an inch. When a pitcher continually adjusts his pitching mechanics due to varying mound conditions, his risk of suffering an arm injury dramatically increases!
